DJI has upgraded its Mavic Professional and Phantom four Professional drone , and added new software program options to the tiny DJI Spark, its smallest client drone. At IFA 2017, DJI revealed the brand new Mavic Professional Platinum, which provides round 11 % extra flight time per cost, and 60 % noise discount. It additionally will get a platinum paint job. The Phantom four Professional Obsidian has a matte-gray end (which isn’t what I’d count on for one thing known as ‘Obsidian’).
The way in which DJI has been capable of obtain the updates with the Mavic Professional Platinum is by way of new digital velocity controllers and model new propellers. Current Mavic Professional homeowners can get a number of the advantages with the brand new propellers alone, that are backwards appropriate. That makes me really feel considerably much less envious, since I already personal a Mavic Professional.
The Phantom four Professional Obsidian is principally completely a shade change, although it does have a brand new magnesium, electroplated gimbal that’s supposed to stop fingerprints.
Lastly, the DJI Spark will get Sphere mode, which permits Spark customers to provide Panorama photographs with a fisheye impact they’ll share proper out to social media websites immediately. That’s going to come back to the drones by way of a firmware replace, pushed by way of the DJI GO four cellular smartphone app.
The brand new Mavic Professional Platinum will retail for $1,zero99, and the Phantom four Professional Obsidian will promote for $1,499, with each transport in September.
